“Our go to place in OBX”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

This is our second time staying here and it did not disappoint. The room was very clean, the bed was super comfy, the pool was perfect and the staff are beyond helpful and friendly. If you're looking for hot tubs, full breakfast, etc this is not your place. If you enjoy simple comfort with awesome beach access you're in the right place. Also, the value is unbeatable! Can't wait to stay again!

It's not the Ritz but it is clean! You can't beat the location and the right on the beach access. Not to mention it is the best deal in town. My husband and I stayed here for far less then the other hotels that aren't on the beach or have the amenities! Love that it is pet friendly to boot. The staff was great and very friendly.

Great vacation spot if you don't need new just like clean. People are super friendly. Pool
is terrific. Love the new colors and the younger ones enjoy the swing set etc. Wonderful
how easy it is to sit by the ocean. Nothing is more calming than the gentle roar of the surf.
I will return as often as possible.

No it's not a shiny new hotel with a lot of amenities. Yes it is a little piece of heaven on earth. It has beach front rooms with a unobstructed ocean view, a great pool, friendly staff, reasonable prices and down home neighbors. The place is worn and dated, clean and convenient. We stay here every year and will not be checking out any other places any time soon!

Room Tip: An upper floor ocean front room is the best!

I booked at the Outer Banks Motor Lodge within a week and a half of travelling. I chose the Motor Lodge because of the price and location. I went in knowing that it was a no frills room in an older motel. My family had a wonderful time. Even though the decor may have been a little dated and the appliances were on the older side, the room was exceptionally clean. The beds were comfortable. The staff at the lodge were exceptionally pleasant to deal with. The room was on the first floor facing the ocean. It was literally steps to the beach. We could watch the surf when the window was open. I wasn't looking for any bells and whistles but wanted a clean, comfortable place for my family to stay. We got exactly what we wanted. I would definitely consider staying at the Outer Banks Motor Lodge again.

Came and stayed here again already this summer. You can not beat this value! Yes, it's an older hotel, but it's very clean and the location can't be beat. I don't know about most but when we're at the beach we are actually out and on the beach most of our visit! Love having the pool on site for when the ocean is a little too rough for the little ones. Looking forward to many more visits here:)

It wasn't fancy but it was perfect for my sister and me. We loved the first floor room, right on the beach, facing the ocean. It was clean, well stocked and the staff (Debra) was great. I will def being staying there again.
